MIYAVI will be returning to the silver screen again as it has been confirmed that he will be joining the cast of the upcoming Bleach Live Action movie. The supernatural movie revolves around “Soul Reapers” (death gods) who are guardians of the mortal world, where MIYAVI puts on the role as the soul reaper Byakuya Kuchiki, a strong and sophisticated character in the franchise. The movie which is produced by Warner Bros and directed by Shinsuke Sato is to be expected to premiere on July 20 later this year!
